How to create a One-Minute Video

Did you know that candidates with a video intro get contacted 10 times more?  Yes, it’s important!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video has to be worth at least 1.8 million words. Because video shoots at 30 frames per second, therefore 1 second of video = 30,000 words and 30,000 words x 60 second = 1.8 million. Ta-da!

Your one-minute video is going to boost your chance of landing a job dream significantly because your potential employers get to see who you are and make a personal connection.  That’s why we added this feature.

Option 1 – Use your smart phone (Recommended)

2. Once you are done with the video, please click SAVE to download

Guidelines:

  • Make sure your background is not too messy.  We recommend one plain color if possible.

  • Have a professional look.

  • Make sure your video is clear and audible

  • Shoot several takes if necessary.

  • Don’t recite your resume and avoid reading.

You may talk about these following:

  • First name only

  • Little bit about yourself (personality, hobbies, work ethics, etc)

  • Job skills (What are your specialities?)

  • What makes you a good fit for the position?

  • Closing statement

Upload the video in your Youtube and simply put your link in your dashboard page under “Your One-Minute Intro Video”
